1. A method implemented by a computing system for identifying one or more speeding violations of a vehicle having a GPS receiver and an on-board diagnostics system, comprising:

  • the computing system receiving information from at least one of the GPS receiver and the on-board diagnostics system, the information corresponding to at least a location and a speed of the vehicle;

    the computing system identifying the speed of the vehicle at the location with at least the received information;

    the computing system determining a posted speed limit for the location from a speed-by-street database;

    the computing system evaluating whether the speed of the vehicle at the location exceeds one or more of a first threshold, a second threshold or a third threshold, the first threshold, the second threshold and the third threshold being based on at least the posted speed limit for the location;

    the computing system determining that a speeding event has occurred upon determining that the speed of the vehicle exceeds at least one of the first threshold, the second threshold or the third threshold;

    the computing system generating a response to the speeding event, wherein a different response is generated depending on whether the speeding event corresponds to the vehicle exceeding the first threshold, the second threshold and/or the third threshold, wherein exceeding the first threshold results in recording the speeding event as a speeding violation record, wherein exceeding the second threshold results in providing a warning that is rendered within the vehicle, and wherein exceeding the third threshold results in sending a speeding violation notice to another computing system; and

    the computing system transmitting, to a remote monitoring system, collected driver performance data, including at least the speed of the vehicle and the result of the evaluating.
